Face2Face Groups

 

Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope is all about connection. Hopefully, through our website (and facebook page), you’ve been able to connect with other parents with stories similar to yours. While connecting online is great, there is still something really special about making a face-to-face connection with someone who ‘gets’ what it’s like to lose a baby.

Face2Face Friendship Groups are not meant to be formal ‘support groups,’ but rather simple gatherings of friends who share a deep common bond. Groups of friends hanging out, enjoying a meal or a cup of coffee (or tea! Or wine!), and talking about their babies.

Please scroll down to find a listing of current Face2Face Groups. If you don’t see a group yet in your hometown, you can always start one! Click here for more information, and here for the application form. If you have any questions, please contact Annette, our Groups Coordinator at annette@facesofloss.com.

*Please note: this directory is being continuously updated as Group Leaders sign up and send in their meeting details. If you happen to find a listing that is missing information it is because we have not yet received it from the Group Leader. Please keep checking back for up-to-date information!
